Gov. Roy Cooper visited Walter M. Williams High School in Alamance County on Tuesday to announce the grants from the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.

“Jobs for North Carolina's Graduates will help ensure that our young people have the skills they need to succeed in the workplace and live productive, rewarding lives,” Cooper said. “Employers need skilled workers, and this program strengthens our state’s workforce by giving students who need it extra help to finish high school ready for additional training and fulfilling careers.”

College and career specialists trained to prepare students to achieve academic, career and life success will serve at Henderson County Career Academy and six other high schools.
